On September 12, 2015, our Benedictine community began a study of Pope Francis’ encyclical, LAUDATO, SI’ On Care for our Common Home.  In commenting on the encyclical, Dr. Daniel Scheid, assistant professor of theology at Duquesne University notes. “Reverence for creation allows awe and wonder to penetrate into our hearts and calls us to a ‘universal communion,’ to kinship with all creatures, to a sense of belonging and rootedness, and to joy in the cosmos.”

Each of us must be a “celebrant of creation.”

The Benedictine Sisters of Pittsburgh wish to express our utmost gratitude to those who have so generously contributed to our Annual and other appeals over the last 12 months.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of those listed. If we have not listed your name correctly and/or excluded an individual, please call Elizabeth Tamburri (724) 502-2597.

Oblates of St. Benedict are people of the general community who formally associate themselves with a specific Benedictine monastery.  The Benedictine Sisters of Pittsburgh treasure the gift of faith filled Oblates.  These women and men, through their quiet commitment to the Rule of Benedict accompanied by prayer and praise of the Monastic Hours, give each of us strength to collaborate in prayer, community, and ministry.
